Dear Family,

I hope you know what a special women your mother was. She was strong and loving and her family and faith were the two most important things in her life. It always amazed me that she remembered my birthday ever year and I always received a Christmas card from her. I loved talking to her on the phone and we usually ended up laughing about something. She had a great giggle - I will miss that. Even though I will miss her very much it is comforting to know that she went to meet her Lord peacefully and I know she is enjoying the re-union she is having with all her loved ones in heaven. I look forward to seeing her again someday.

Pat is my son Andrew’s grandmother. She watched him as a baby and I thought of him as her “ninth child”! Pat welcomed me into her family when I first met Mike and was always there for Andrew. She grew the best tomatoes on the planet in addition to her fabulous cookies and fried chicken! What a gracious lady!

Pat was A very dear and wise lady. She loved her family first and foremost. She was devoted to her Catholic faith and her Irish Hetitage. All of her grandkids will tell you she made the best chocolate chip cookies and I think she made a batch every week. If her grandkids were in school programs she would be there to see them. She never forgot a child’s birthday. She loved her home and her many beloved dogs.
She’s definitely walking on streets of gold meeting her sons and husband and looking down and watching over the rest of her children.

Rest In Peace,
